The Los Angeles Lakers will try to defend their title and they have high hopes at the moment. They entered the NBA season as the top seed in the Western Conference. However, they lost Anthony Davis and LeBron James to injuries. Both players have key roles on the roster and were forced to miss a lot of time. Davis has returned to the floor and his team lost the first game.
But, Lakers players aren’t really concerned about their seeding. Dennis Schroder wasn’t concerned about the seeding. He can already see his team in the NBA Finals. If healthy, the Los Angeles Lakers can definitely win the title. They have all the talent they need to win the championship this season.
Davis is well aware of the fact that the Lakers are dangerous. He wants everyone in the NBA to know it. The rest of the NBA has to know it.
Lakers go after their title and fans have high hopes
In his convo with ESPN NBA insider Rachel Nichols, the big man shared his expectations heading into the team’s playoff run.
“Put us up against anyone,” he said. “I don’t think no one wants to see us first round… I think we’re capable of beating anyone in a seven-game series.”
The eight-time All Star joined the Lakers at the right time. He is the perfect partner for LeBron James. The Lakers are considered favorites to win the title in 2021. They have a few issues to handle at the moment. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel can’t wait for LeBron to return. He will probably miss a few more minutes.
Davis missed a lot of games due to his calf strain. His struggles forced LA to miss the game. In the 30 games he missed, the Lakers went 14-16.
Hopefully, players will find a way to reverse some of the damage and lead the team to the NBA Finals. The next few weeks are really important for the team. There’s so much going on right now.
